New Music: Death Cab For Cutie Amy's Pick Of The Week

Death Cab For Cutie fan? If not you may be after hearing this new one...

Ben Gibbard and Death Cab are back with some great new music. Hot off the presses, the band just dropped their new song "Gold Rush" after announcing a new album is close behind called Thank You for Today

"Gold Rush" is a song that looks at how neighborhoods change, in this case lead singer songwriter Ben gibbard is talking about Capitol Hill in Seattle where he's lived for over 20 years.

Her tells NPR's "All songs Considered":

I've become acutely aware of how I connect my memories to my geography and [how] the landscape of the city changes. I'll walk down Broadway and walk past a location that used to be a bar I'd frequent with friends, or somewhere where I had a beautifully intense conversation with somebody that I once loved very much. The song is not a complaint about how things were better or anything like that. It's an observation, but more about coming to terms with the passage of time and losing the people and the moments in my life all over again as I walk down a street that is now so unfamiliar.

Death Cab for Cutie's ninth studio album Thank You for Today is due August 17 on Atlantic Records. The band will also launch a U.S. tour in August with a stop in Boston at the Boch Center - Wang Theater October 14th
